Food, Fibre & Land International Group (FFLI), a Caason investee, has been awarded a $100,000 WA Government Innovation Grant for an industrial hemp growing and processing regional hub.
Caason MD & CEO Craig Astill is a non-executive director on the FFLI board. He said: “It is very pleasing to see this grant going into our regional hub in Manjimup, WA. I am really looking forward to seeing the local flow-on effect for employment, training and education. FFLI is a paving the way in Australia for the growth of industrial hemp for healthy food, building materials and personal care.”
